Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome way of playing with Hot Wheels! This Hot Wheels iD Smart Track Kit brings playing with Hot Wheels to a whole new level. Just by itself, without the app, it's a thrill to race the cars around the track, seeing how fast we can get them to go. With the app, we are able to complete fun challenges that are at times pretty difficult to do. There are so many different challenges that the fun goes on and on. My son and my husband have played for hours, trying to complete challenges. My daughter likes to just make the cars go around and around. This is a neat, new and high tech way to play with Hot Wheels cars. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all-inclusive set This set is a great starter set and comes with all the components to get started. It is fun and brings a new dimension to the Hot Wheels playing experience. I wish there was a way to retrofit some of our older Hot Wheels cars to measure their speed as well, but I think only the special "iD" cars will be "smart" on the track. This set includes 2 such "iD" cars and more are available for purchase. Overall it is a fun set. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome toy!! My son has always loved to race cars, so this track was like a dream come true. I loved the fact that it was able to connect so effortlessly to my iPad and remained connected without an issues. The track itself is easy to put together and play. You have the option to play with or without a tablet or iPad, but using one adds to the fun. My kids played with the race track for hours and there was never a dull moment. You can also design the track however you like. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super fun! My son actually stayed off the computer most of the day playing with his new track. He really loved trying to beat his previous times and changing the track configuration. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun for ALL ages This Hot Wheels race track is so much fun! My 2, 6 and 8 year old love this. It has been a week and it is still there go to toy when school is out. There are different ways to set up the track for more fun. My 8 year old loves having the app to go with it on his iPad. If you have hot wheel lovers then this is a great track to get.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Exciting toy! But with some flaws I received the Hot Wheels ID Smart Track Kit for free in exchange for my honest opinion. Even in its large box, this toy is impressive - the kids were in such suspense waiting to play. The packaging is super sturdy to prevent damage to the electronics and it takes quite awhile to dismantle the whole thing, in addition to building and setting it up. If you have impatient kids, keep that in mind so *you* don't go out of your mind while building. To be fair, I'm not sure if our instructions got misplaced or if they were missing from the set, but my husband (who is usually a whiz at setup & building) had a tough time winging it, even with google and youtube and whatever guides he found off the interwebs. Note also that the app, which is a key component of the Smart Track toy, is a whopping 824 MB, not exactly tiny, and was incompatible with my son's old Samsung Galaxy Tab. We instead played on my husband's phone, which was not ideal bc the experience was sorely limited by the small screen. Unfortunately, we also found the app clunky to use and not that well designed, so hopefully it will get updated as Hot Wheels ID expands. Nevertheless, this is an exciting toy and my kids loved how the booster made the cars whip around the track! The concept is so cool: little chip-embedded race cars that look just like the ones I grew up with, but can do much more, like complete different track challenges and record racing history such as speed and lifetime mileage. And serve as an avatar to be played in the app! You can play games in the virtual world using the "same" car that you played with on the track - same stats, same body detailing. That said, I should also mention that the speed at which the cars sometimes flew off the tracks made me nervous. The first time it happened I was grateful none of us happened to be sitting in the trajectory bc the car crashed so hard into our cabinet it left a big scratch! I know it's marked age 8+, but even then I don't think I would rest easy letting them play totally unsupervised due to the speed. At full price, I'm not sure the Smart Track system will grab a huge following. It's a really really cool toy, but the high cost plus the safety issue def makes me hesitate. Looking forward to seeing how the system evolves as they develop this line of Hot Wheels! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
